You are a citizen of the Roman Empire, and a professional heavy infantryman of the Roman Army. You enlisted in your legion for twenty-five years of service, and you are both relieved and anxious to know you have only a few years left.
As you grip your military-issued Ancient Spear, preparing alongside your fellow soldiers to go into battle, you hope that your training will continue to serve you well. At the very least, you have confidence in the sharpness of your weapon.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Ancient Spear is a long, leaf-shaped Roman spear perfect for your next LARP character. The spear is detailed with a lot of personality, including a spearhead featuring a golden fuller. These little details continue down the pole with brass-coloured bands and imitations of dark red leather bindings, giving way to a fine wooden texture painted to look like polished black wood.
The obvious choice with this weapon is the Elliptical Shield, but this spear is neutral enough to be used with almost any combination of Epic Armoury equipment that best fits your character. Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass pipe and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.

All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment.
